AEA Halo 6 Loop

I've had several requests for a copy of the AEA Halo 6 six meter loop assembly instructions.

To save you the trouble of contacting me, here they are in PDF format, along with page one of the vintage 1997 AEA catalog describing the product. Just click on the images below to open, or right-click to download.

The loop is 27" in diameter, the ceramic spacers are 1-1/4", and the stabilizing rod with endcaps is 25-3/4".

There is also a 1996 QST Review of this antenna available on the ARRL website in the members section. For my own quick mini-review, see the antenna farm pages.

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat." — Albert Einstein
